We had a grease fire in the oven. The fire was quickly extinguished and cleaned up. When we go to use the oven now, it never gets out of the pre-heat section of the process. The oven can be heard igniting and a flame seen from the vents for about a minute and then it shuts off. A few minutes pass and it ignites again and shuts off after a few seconds, occasionally you will hear just clicks and the oven does not ignite.
It seems something was damaged by the fire. Does it sound like any part in particular? and something that can be replaced by a non-tecnician?
ANSWER Hello David,
You may want to check you oven sensor to ensure that it is not defective. You should read 1100 ohms at room temperature. You would also want to check your gas valve coils to unsure that they are not bad. You should have 216 ohms resistance from broil to common and from bake to common. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
